Style Guru Bio: Kellen Fitzgerald

I am a 20-year-old college junior from New Hampshire with an affinity for photography, fashion, and collaging. I am a Communications major and a Visual Arts and Business double minor at Fordham University. I am also a member of the women’s track and cross country teams. As I begin my sixth semester with CollegeFashionista and my third as a CollegeFashionista Head Style Guru, I not only have the privilege of expanding upon my own personal style, but I also have the opportunity to be inspired by those we feature on the site.

My own personal style is a smorgasbord of dainty, feminine pieces mixed with casual or masculine cuts. I fancy the combination of oversized or graphic tees with ballet-inspired skirts or flats. I have a weakness for stripes, ballet flats, and button-downs, and find that the unique character of an outfit lies within subtle and telling details. Being a college student in New York City, I am constantly learning how to personalize the current trends in an affordable way from those around me. Any window display-worthy outfit can be achieved with resourcefulness and creative thought. To achieve balance within a look, I like to mix classic cuts with contemporary pieces, or trim androgynous fashions with a feminine touch. Every era and genre of fashion has something to offer, and by transforming the old and embracing the new, one can transform an everyday ensemble into truly unique art.

To give and receive inspiration is an opportunity to be valued, and by sharing the charisma and creativity of the CollegeFashionistas at Fordham, I hope to instill this same appreciation in our readers.
